Promoting Special Collections with a Medical School's Sesquicentennial Celebration


Northwestern University's Feinberg School of Medicine celebrates its sesquicentennial in 2009. The Galter Health Sciences Library's Special Collections is often used to promote the library in the life of its medical school, and this year it fulfills a crucial, supporting role in the sesquicentennial celebrations. Because much of the school's history is located in the Special Collections' resources, it is the library's responsibility to share this history and use it as a means of promoting the school's future excellence in education, research and patient care based on a record of past success. When the sesquicentennial celebration ends, the library will have played a significant role in promoting the medical school, advancing the role of the library and demonstrating the value of history and preservation in the life of the school.
